Online Course Platforms Offer Paid Freelance Gigs to Professors

Online Course Platforms Offer Paid Freelance Gigs to Professors | Tec+Ed | Scoop.it

"As online courses multiply outside the formal structures of academe, professors increasingly have opportunities to earn cash on the side by freelancing. Udemy, an online-education company, offers anyone, including professors, the chance to design and teach an online course. Instructors set the prices for their courses, which tend to run from about $30 to $100 per student, and take home 70 percent of the revenue."

The research that MOOCs need | George Veletsianos

The research that MOOCs need | George Veletsianos | Tec+Ed | Scoop.it

The important questions that I believe we should be asking at this point are: What education-specific research will be beneficial to the field? What do we need to know? And how should we go about investigating what we need to know about? Systematic empirical research can (a) generate a deeper understanding of this phenomenon, (b) provide evidence to support or refute the claims surrounding MOOCs, and (c) help universities and MOOC providers enhance course offerings.

NMC Horizon Report > 2013 K-12 Education Edition | The New Media Consortium | Tec+Ed | Scoop.it

"The New Media Consortium, the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), with the support of HP, produced the NMC Horizon Report > 2013 K-12 Edition. This fifth edition in the annual K-12 series of the NMC Horizon Project examines emerging technologies for their potential impact on and use in teaching, learning, and creative inquiry within the environment of pre-college education. Six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, as well as key trends and challenges expected to continue over the same period, giving educators, school administrators, and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning."

This is the final post in a series of five that explored STEM, PBL, and the Common Core and it focuses on resources for Project Based Learning units. "By searching through STEM subjects in these sites’ databases or directories you can come up with a PBL unit to use, remix, or possible implement a lesson from."

An extensive list of resources is provided with short descriptions so you have a sense of what you may find.

MOOCs are so unambitious: introducing the MOOPhD - by Jon Dron

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, June 6, 2013 12:15 AM

"A MOOPhD is a somewhat different kind of animal from a MOOC. It is much longer and much bigger, for a start - more of a program than a course. For many students it might, amongst other things, encapsulate a variety of MOOCs that would help them to gain knowledge of the research process, including a range of research methods courses and perhaps some more specific subject-related courses.  This is quite apart from the central process of supporting the conduct of original research that would form the 'course' itself.


A MOOPhD will also attract a very different kind of learner from those found in most MOOCs, notwithstanding the fact that, so far, a lot of MOOC-takers already have at least a first degree, not uncommonly in the same subject area as the MOOC.
Perhaps the biggest difference between a MOOPhD and a MOOC, at least of the xMOOC variety, is the inevitable lack of certainty about the path to the destination. MOOCs usually have a fairly fixed and clear trajectory, as well as moderately fixed content and coverage.  Even cMOOCs that largely lack specified resources, outcomes and assessments, have topics and timetables mapped out in advance. While the intended outcomes of a PhD are typically pretty clear (the ability to perform original and rigorous research, to write academically sound papers and reports, to design a methodology, review literature, etc), and there are commonalities in the process and landmarks along the way, the paths to reaching those goals are anything but determined. A PhD, to a far greater degree than most courses and lower level programs, specifies a method and processes, but not the content or pathways that will be taken along the way. This raises some very interesting and challenging questions about what we mean by 'course' and the wisdom and validity of MOOCs in general, but discussion of that can wait for another post. Suffice to say, it is a bit different from what we have seen so far."

As you know by now, the titles I include in these lists are all web tools that I have come across in my daily online meandering. Each time I stumble upon a good tool that one of my fellow bloggers reviewed, I add it to my bookrmaking list till I end up having  a "meaty" collection for you.
